(AP) Texas' lieutenant governor has suspended a filibuster against wide-ranging abortion restrictions, but Democrats moved quickly to appeal the decision.


Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst made the decision Tuesday night after determining that Democratic Sen. Wendy Davis strayed off the topic.


Democrats immediately appealed the decision and set off a heated debate about the rules and whether they could vote on the bill.
